Consensus: Though bolstered by a thoroughly charming performance by Bill Murray in the central role, Hyde Park on Hudson is an FDR biopic that lets down both its audience and its subject.

The Atlantic

[It] may have the look of a prestige picture, but it plays more like a version of FDR's life as told by TMZ, focusing on naughty details and ignoring the historical implications of the events depicted.

It's never a bad movie, but it can't quite gel into a good one either.

The performances across the board are strong, but it's Murray who's most impressive.

Time Out

Somewhat uneven and ultimately underwhelming, but there's plenty to admire and enjoy here nonetheless.

Hyde Park on the Hudson' is a forgettable historical footnote.

Eric D. Snider

The potentially sordid FDR-and-Daisy half of the drama is feebly unrewarding, bordering on pointless, and bogged down by ponderous narration.

Connie Ogle
Miami Herald

A languid, tedious effort that never bothers to get to the heart of its characters, the film is a shallow reading of a significant time told mostly from the viewpoint of a lifeless character.

Globe and Mail

Essentially, Hyde Park on Hudson is a Shakespearean revel.

Big Hollywood

An unconventional drama that succeeds despite an uneven plot.
